The Volunteer Literacy Program recruits, trains and matches volunteer tutors with adult students. The support and encouragement that tutors provide is a key influence in the lives of students. Students show greater achievement when they have individual instruction.
Volunteers tutor students individually or in small groups.
Tutors help their communities by improving the lives of residents, one person at a time. Volunteers tutor when it's convenient — morning, afternoon or evening, and in an academic subject area they enjoy.
Why do our tutors volunteer?
The support and encouragement tutors provide is a key influence in the lives of students, and students show greater achievement when they have individual instruction. By volunteering several hours a week, tutors are a source of inspiration.
This project was made possible by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library (ILS), a division of the Office of the Secretary of State, using state funds designed for literacy.
